Fall Wedding In Chicago | Jo March and Jane Bennet

Fall Wedding in Chicago | Jo March and Jane Bennett

“I want to make poems that say right out, plainly,
what I mean, that don’t go looking for the
laces of elaboration, puffed sleeves. I want to
keep close and use often words like
heavy, heart, joy, soon, and to cherish
the question mark and her bold sister
the dash. I want to write with quiet hands. I
want to write while crossing the fields that are
fresh with daisies and everlasting and the
ordinary grass. I want to make poems while thinking of
the bread of heaven and the
cup of astonishment; let them be
songs in which nothing is neglected,
not a hope, not a promise. I want to make poems
that look into the earth and the heavens
and see the unseeable. I want them to honor
both the heart of faith, and the light of the world;
the gladness that says, without any words, everything.”

– Everything, by Mary Oliver

The next stop on my big travel adventure takes us to visit our old friends Jo March and Jane Bennet in Chicago for their beautiful fall wedding in front of a church full of family and friends. In honor of their wedding day, the weather provided an unseasonably chilly fall day. After getting ready at home, everyone bundled up and walked to the church to get dressed. Because it was a bit rainy, we spent a little time making portraits inside the church, which is an historic building with spectacular architecture. We also had a bit of fun in the courtyard, where there was a covered walkway that kept everyone dry. After the ceremony, everyone headed upstairs for delicious meat pies and joyous dancing.
